About This Artwork

The "Hojoki" (An Account of My Hut or A Ten Foot Square Hut) is a collection of essays written in 1212 by Kamo no Chomei, a poet and recluse in the Middle ages in Japan. He willingly lived in a 10-foot square ("hojo") hut "cell of observation" amidst continuing disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and famines, from which he observed, considered and recorded the world for 25 years. In 'hōjō_10x10feet_shift', 2018, the basic forms of this room are projected with moving light fields on a 10-foot square. So the video installation is trying to transfer this spot with a re-staging into the actual time, in the era of globalization.
